A cousin of Walther P99 in looks , a Carl Walther P22 is chambered for .22 Long Rifle.

I bought it a few weeks back NIB for dirt cheap compared to the the market's asking price which ranges from PKR 50-55,000.

P22 is a DA/SA with a very smooth trigger mechanism.

It has polymer receiver and come in different color variants. Very pretty and futuristic to look at the pistol come in with piccadaly rails for LAM modules. Safety features are flawless. The pistol will not fire a chambered round unless the magazine is inserted. The firing pin is blocked in safety mode although the trigger/hammer mechanism is active and will dry fire without the firing pin getting activated in safety mode. The second safety is with a key like in the Steyr M9A1.

P22 fires with a loudest bang & the biggest muzzle flash if compared with other .22LR pistols and has threaded barrel for a suppressor.

With three dot sights it is very accurate. We (Me & Imran) tested it at the range with CCI 32 grain HyperVelocity rounds at 25 yards.

Pls note that we had feeding problems and the pistol is ammo picky (Magnum rounds recommended) but again this was the first time we were firing it so it might require some breakin, for now therefore only recommended for plinking, sporting and not for SD/HD, until I get my 1000 rounds through it.

About mechanics & components, the slide is sintered metal with a steel breechface insert and the barrel is rifled steel inserted in another steel barrel (barrel within a barrel).

Here goes the eye candy

Threaded Barrel for Suppressor

Tried the .22LR CCI 32 Grain Hollow Point Hypervelocity rounds with this pistol at 10 yards on three 1, 1.2, 1.5 inch wood planks. Following are the results.

Third Sheet (It couldnt pass through the third)

As we can see that the bullet expansion was FLAWLESS & the BEST. Size after expansion was .31 inches which is not bad at all.

Its a very nice gun.

I've seen it at DAAD. They were asking for 55k

But would .22 be recommended for SD?

A bit offtopic but how can such a beautiful pistol still be lying NIB for over a year ! I would go crazy at the range the very next day.

Yep. I'm a little twisted when it comes down to acquisition of fire arms. I have the following NIB not a single shot fired.

1. Glock 19 Talon, Limited Gold Edition.
2. Walther P99
3. Beretta PX4 Storm Compact (Only fired a few)
4. Beretta Urika 2 Gold
5. Beretta AL391 Teknys Gold
6. Sig 250c in Camo with threaded barrel
